Tel Rumeida, yesterday. A settler named Bleicher tries to cross the Palestinian-owned land,. The path is used by the military as a way to safety, but not allowed for use by settlers. Bleicher gets angry and starts to cut the fence. The army declared the area closed to Israelis. Bleicher will not leave until the soldiers would open a way for his vehicle to pass Again we realize that we are all working for the settlers.
Yesterday, soldiers briefly detained a developmentally disabled
Palestinian boy, who is under the age of criminal responsibility, on
suspicion that he had thrown stones. The boy, A. a-Rajbi, (full name
withheld in interest of privacy) who will be 12 in a month, was detained
after Palestinian children threw stones at soldiers on the main road of
the Jabel Johar neighborhood in Hebron, close to the settlement of
Kiryat Arba. A-Rajbi was handcuffed, blindfolded, and held on the floor
of an army jeep for some 15 minutes until his father arrived and
convinced the soldiers to release his son, who is mentally disabled and
In the video footage, filmed by B’Tselem volunteer
Samih Da’na from his window, soldiers are seen holding the boy,
handcuffing him, blindfolding him and closing him in the jeep, despite
cries by Palestinian residents that the boy is mentally disabled. The
footage also shows settlers from Kiryat Arba, watching the incident from
behind the settlement’s fence. Some are seen calling out encouragement
to the soldiers, including several racist remarks.
Around 30 settlers came this Saturday morning in the land
Imad Knebi in Tel Rumeda, Hebron, to destroy the fence that he is
building. This fence is supposed to protect his land and his olives
trees from settlers attacks. It took him 5 years to get the permit from
Israel Civil Administration to build the fence. Now, he has the
authorization but since he started the works few weeks ago he suffered
repeatedly from new settlers attacks. It happened under the eyes of the
police and the soldiers, who neither this morning prevented the settlers
to damage Abu Imad Knebi fence

3 o’clock in the morning two jeeps invaded in #Bilin throwing many
sound bombs and tear gas to the houses and beating a old man with a gun
asked him to show them his neighbor home. The soldiers collected all of
the canisters before they leave, and also not allowed me to film and
they shot to me sound bombs and tear gas.

This morning (1/10/14) at Salaymeh checkpoint in Hebron, Israeli border
police fired excessive amounts of tear gas at schoolchildren. ISM
activists present counted at least 24 canisters fired. Several young
Palestinian children threw stones towards the checkpoint, and one border
police officer ran out of the checkpoint twice, so he could fire the
tear gas closer to the school. ISM volunteers also observed how one
border police officer aimed the tear gas canisters directly at one boy,
making him jump to avoid them.
Mohammad Sadiq Knebi owns a pieces of land with olive trees in Tel
Rumeida, Hebron. For years the settlers tried to damage his land burning
the thousand-years old olive trees.
More than 5 years ago he decided
to apply for a permit through the Israel Civil Administration to fence
the area. Finally, few weeks ago they authorized him, and yesterday he
started to built the fence but the settlers tried to prevent him hardly.
This morning young settlers uprooted some poles and another group tried to disturb the work.
